I have had a few experiences with the snort 1.8.3 and 1.8.4
distributions that I would like to share with the list.
The issue that has come up is that the MS visual studio (visual C++)
project files that are in the snort tarfiles are out of synch with the
.c and .h files actually distributed. The resolution (obtained via
several off-list discussions) is summarized here for the record.
To get the windows project file to build the snort executable,
in either 1.8.3 or 1.8.4 you must
Remove files from the project (highlight file and hit "del" key, or pull
down the edit->delete)
> Add files to project (Project->Add to project->Files)
In addition, for the 1.8.4 release, I had to wrangle a small change to
snort.h to get a certain definition done correctly:
Just above the line in snort.h that includes decode.h, insert the snip:
#define IFNAMSIZ MAX_ADAPTER_NAME
#endif /* WIN32 */
and that should do it.
